Group Dynamics: Understanding Group Success and Failure in Collaborative Learning.
Miller, Judith E.; And Others
New Directions for Teaching and Learning, n59 p33-44 Fall 1994
A discussion of group dynamics in collaborative learning describes use of this approach in an experimental biology course. Three approaches to group dynamics are outlined (personality and learning style, cognitive style, and group life). Identified are variables that teachers either have little power to affect, can address in course design, or can manipulate as the course progresses. (MSE)
